I was given the Nikon CoolPix digital camera for Christmas in 2008. My previous camera was a Olympus, which I loved as well. The Olympus was big and bulky and I missed out on a lot of moments with my daughter because the camera was too bulky to carry around. But then I received the CoolPix and it goes everywhere with me. The camera is lightweight and compact and fits right into my back pocket. Now I don't miss a thing with my daughter. The CoolPix comes in a variety of colors so you are not stuck with either black or silver. The LCD display screen is huge and the clarity is incredible. This camera does not have a viewfinder which is how I think they can make it so compact. It has many features and different scene settings and has 4 different flash options with one being a red-eye reducer. And it takes great videos. It also has a rechargeable battery. The only thing I did not like about it is it did not come with a case. I have to be very careful with it since the display screen is so big, I'm scared I'm going to damage it.
